  Introduction
  ------------
  Thank you for purchasing the NETGEAR Model FA310TX Fast Ethernet
  PCI adapter.  The NETGEAR FA310TX adapter has been developed by

  peripheral component interface (PCI) local bus technology.

  A DOS installation/help program, HELP.EXE, is provided for ease of setup 
  for normal users.  HELP.EXE will provide information on driver installation
  for the appropriate network operating systems.  A Diagnostics program is
  also provided to verify the connection between the NETGEAR FA310TX adapter
  and the hub or switch.

  To run the installation/help program, simply execute HELP.EXE from the 
  root directory of the driver disk.  (eg. A:\HELP<Enter>)

  To run the diagnostic program, simply run DIAG.EXE program in the root
  directory of the driver disk.  (eg. A:\DIAG<Enter>)

  The content of the diskette can also be copied into the hard disk for
